    .NET Framework error

    I keep getting this error message at Windows start up and trying to run some programs like Intel Driver Update.

    I've tried the Microsoft .NetFix tool and that didn't help. Any suggestions greatly appreciated...

    You may need to completely remove .NET and reinstall it. See .NET Framework Cleanup Tool User’s Guide.

    I did the Clean up Tool Twice and reinstalled NET Framework from Windows Downloads and I get the same message...

    Does Event Viewer have anything recorded with a time stamp for when you get this error message ?

    Have you recently downloaded any programs that may have inserted themselves into the Startup menu ?

    See if you get the same error after performing a clean boot.

    I can't view the event viewer. I get a message: MMC could not create the snap in. The snap in may not have been installed correctly.
    There was nothing installed recently that I can think of.

    Run a command prompt as an admin by going Start - type cmd then right click on cmd and select Run as administrator - accept the UAC and enter chkdsk /f

    You will be prompted to type and enter y for it to run on the next reboot, then enter shutdown /r /t 00 to effect an immediate reboot and wait for it to do its thing.

    You will be able to see its progress but as well as what it reports for the volume, look to see if it reports any KBs in bad sectors.

    It will only be on the screen for a short while and as you are unable to open Event Viewer, then you won't be able to see its full report.

    When that has completed, enter sfc /scannow to see what that reports.

    If it reports it is unable to repair some files then run SFCFix.exe which will give a more concise report and may even be able to fix the corruption.

    Do you have any antimalware scanners installed ?

    If not then go Start - type mrt.exe and press enter, then you can manually run the MSRT on a quick scan.

    Ran both scans and no errors or bad segments are found.

    There are some things that the file check doesn't scan and the MMC must be one of them.

    Now that nothing else has been found to be amiss, you can try this MS Fix it to repair the MMC to see if that will resolve at least one problem.

    If that fixes not being able to get into Event Viewer, then you may be able to see what else is or isn't going on.

    What makes no sense to me is this, the Net Framework install programs say the program is already installed but other programs say it needs to be installed for them to run. I've seen this with .Net Framework 2 and 4. How can it be installed but need to be installed? The .NET Framework Repair tool does not help.

    I'd try the .NET Framework Repair Tool first, https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/down....aspx?id=49981 although this doesn't always work.

    You can uninstall .NET from Programs and Features.

    In Programs and Features/Turn Windows features on or off - is the box for v3.5.1 shaded ?

    If you didn't have v4.6.1 installed, then installing that may resolve as it supersedes the older v4 ones.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/down....aspx?id=49981

    Did the MMC MS Fix it enable you to get into the Event Viewer ?
